ProSight Duo Access Security
Progent's ProSight Duo catalog of services integrates industry-leading technology from Duo, a Cisco Systems company, to offer two-factor ID validation solutions. Two-factor authentication is one of the pillars of modern zero-trust cybersecurity design. 2FA uses separate channel ID confirmation to build an additional level of security on top of just passwords. This blocks the most frequent sources of cybersecurity break-ins including phishing, brute-force password attacks, and credential theft.
Duo's single-tap Mobile Push app streamlines access security
Duo's push technology minimizes time and hassle by permitting users to verify their identity simply by tapping "Approve" on the validation box on their own smartphone or wearable. This single-touch process does away with the need to retrieve an email or text message and copy a security code manually.
Progent's ProSight Duo suite consists of three subscription-based services that progressively add features. ProSight Duo MFA permits organizations to deploy Duo's two-factor authentication technology to protect all applications while offering basic access tools, unified management, and fast provisioning. ProSight Duo Access includes all the capabilities of ProSight Duo MFA and adds adaptive authentication controls and endpoint health monitoring. ProSight Duo Beyond brings the ability to differentiate corporate as opposed to personal devices, deny access to untrusted devices, and give users safe and transparent access to your internal apps. Progent is a certified Duo Managed Service Provider and can help you to plan, deploy and manage an advanced identity validation solution that provides the highest level of access security without bogging down your users.
The overwhelming majority of security break-ins exploit compromised passwords. Every service plan in Progent's ProSight Duo catalog of access security solutions can eliminate your sole dependence on password protection by allowing two-factor authentication. With 2FA implemented, when you log into a protected online application and enter your password you are requested to confirm your identity by means of a device which you have sole possession of and that runs on a separate ("out-of-band") network channel. A broad assortment of devices can be utilized as this additional form of authentication such as a smartphone or wearable, a hardware token, a landline telephone, etc. You can enroll multiple validation devices.
ProSight Duo two-factor authentication provides an extra layer of security
After you confirm who you are via your validation device, you are allowed to use your app or access your VPN or remote desktop connection. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification feature activated, you can simply touch "Approve" on your iOS or Android phone or watch. This improves the sign-on experience by making the verification process nearly instantaneous. For other authentication units, such as a token, you can copy a temporary passcode.
